Eco-friendly water games

It’s summer, and it’s hot. When I was little, I loved running through sprinklers. We’ve been reticent to do that with our son, because it seems like a waste of water.

There are two waterpads in our town that I believe recycle the water that shoots out, but we have to drive to those.

In an attempt to cut back on our gas usage, we decided to buy our son a slip-n-slide. I know that to many that would be a waste of water, but we aren’t driving all over town.

Also, our son loses interest after a few minutes. We’ve been repositioning our slip-n-slide around our yard in order to spread out the water wealth to our grass.

Although the slip-n-slide isn’t the greenest of items, we did find an eco-friendly water hose — the Colorite Element Pure and Simple water hose. It’s not like shower heads and faucets that insert air into the stream and cut down on water usage. But it’s lead-free and pthalate-safe. This means that the water that our son inevitably swallows isn’t full of toxins.

The hose works well and our son loves slip-slip sliding. It’s the best solution we’ve found so far.

Do you have any greener suggestions for summer water play?
